Pastels of Western European painters in the Hermitage collections.

C:\ \pastel_b.jpg Exhibition Pastels of Western European painters in the Hermitage collections of XVIII - early XX centuries opened in the 12 Columns Hall of the New Hermitage. 65 masterpieces of French, German, Swedish, Norwegian and Italian artists are displayed, among them works by Renoir, Manet, Degas, Picasso. However, the exhibition's conception is not just to show single bright works but to let a viewer get a general idea of the museum's collection and show the development of the pastel technique and style. The last big exposition of pastel works was held in Hermitage 30 years ago.
